iMovie doesn’t find iPhoto videos?

In my case it was because I keep the iPhoto library on a different drive, and symlink it to ~/pictures. iMovie for some reason doesn’t get on with this. Launch iPhoto with alt held down, select the iPhoto library directly (not the linked version), let it start then quit. iMovie will now live happily ever after…

Other issues with iMovie not finding the videos would appear to boil down to the same problem, perhaps with a different cause.
